MLP Solar Rebate Program Launches
On May 14th, the Department of Energy Resources (DOER) announced it had awarded $2.3 million to Energy New England (ENE) and the Massachusetts Municipal Wholesale Electric Cooperative (also known as MMWEC) to offer a rebate program for the installation of small scale solar photovoltaic systems in certain Municipal Light Plant (MKP) service territories. ENE and MMWEC will act as program administrators for the MLPs that they represent and together are representing 36 MLPs and the 45 municipalities they serve.
Customers in participating service territories will be able to apply through ENE or MMWEC for rebates up to $1.20 per watt (capped at 50% of total project costs) for projects equal to 25 kW DC or less and the program will begin accepting applications on May 20, 2019.
